Mary Ryan

Handmade Jewelry Artist

Mary Ryan has been creating one of a kind and limited edition jewelry and accessories since 2004. 

The Chicago area based jewelry artist has won local and international praise for her fine silver designs.


A graduate of Illinois State University, Mary enjoys a successful career as an Interior Designer. Still, a need arose to release excess creative energy.  A love for fashion and all things shiny made her a natural fit for jewelry design.  The Little Brown Bird was born.


Mary's designs are influenced by nature, using organic shapes, and depicting flora and fauna in her pieces.  She uses recycled metals in many of her works preserving this wonderful rock we live on.
